A friend asked me the other day a very intriguing question… “If I could give you a magic wand for ministry what would you do?”

I thought for a moment and God revealed it to me. I said, “Deed and Truth IS the Magic Wand.“ God has provided it to be the vehicle to fill the gaps and accomplish significant ministry needs and new ideas that he presents and wants to bring about through the mission connection.

I praise God for Deed and Truth… and I thank God for you who have faithfully prayed and given generously of your time and finances to make this ministry come to fruition. This is fruit to your account in heaven.

It has been a life-changing year for many people whom we had the privilege to meet and serve. It has been a life-changing year for Betty and I. I am humbled by what He has orchestrated. I am blown away by His grace. I am so very grateful for your compassion and support.

As we look ahead, may we all be “Blown Away” by the great things God has in store for us… more than we could ask or even imagine… in this coming year.

Happy New Year!

–Pastor Dan
